Sunday post 65; It's Monday! What are you reading? 50
The Sunday Post - a chance for a chat and a catch-up with other bloggers - is hosted by Kimba, right here: http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/ and It's Monday! What are you reading? is hostedy by Kathryn, here: http://bookdate.blogspot.co.nz/
Well. First off, I'm no longer a student. I woke up on Friday morning, and I just knew it wasn't the right thing, so I withdrew from my course. It means I'm back looking for work, but it feels like the right thing. And I'm not ruling out studying in the future, but I think I'll take up something that I'm more suited to, personality wise. Also I knew - even with all the help in the world - there was no way I was going to pass statistics. It's like my friend said today - there's a difference between something hard that you know you can do ultimately, and something that you can't and fundamentally? Stats is just something I can't do. Plus, I don't really think a BCom is right for me either.
So where from here? Jobseeking, and some casual work hopefully. Otherwise, I have other projects around the house I want to try and get done - mostly sorting things out and throwing out boxes and tidying DVDs.
Spawn and I went to a live wrestling show on Saturday night, there's an outfit here that does periodic events - modelled after the WWE. It was the second one we've been to, and it was a lot of fun.
What else ... not much, really. I'm STILL reading the Alexander Hamilton bio, and Tongues of Serpents by Naomi Novik. I also picked up Abroad, by Liz Jacobs and I'm hoping to have a review of that up this week.
What about you? How's your week? What are you reading?
